Destroy All the Elemental Rings

Genshin - How to Beat the Iniquitous Baptist Step 1

To beat the Iniquitous Baptist World Boss, you must destroy all the Elemental Rings via any Elemental Reactions that are best for it!

Since the boss uses Cryo, Electro, Pyro, or Hydro, you must use either Vaporize or Hyperbloom reactions to destroy all of them.

Destroying all Elemental Rings will paralyze the boss allowing you to dish out more DMG by using all your characters' Elemental Bursts!
